Come for the secret subterranean jamspace, stay for an interesting backstory that includes an American ex-pat, a jazz player, and nailing down the perfect lineup via online help-wanted ads.

WR523: Grandpa's Army

Reunited with a few of my former bandmates in late ‘90s Winnipeg ska band [Grandpa’s Army](http://witchpolice.blogspot.com/2009/04/every-grandpas-army-song-ever.html)! The band played its ‘last’ show 20 years ago next month (we did a reunion show a couple years later), and getting together after all these years was a blast. It's a ridiculous conversation about a band that was never as good as its own hype, featuring Alex Seville (keyboards), Goldwyn Millar (drums), Johnny Perrin (vocals), Doug Feaver (bass), Erica Jacobson (trumpet), James Requeima (tenor sax), Morgan Jones (trombone), and me (guitar)! This episode brought to you by the Gumshoe Strut’s new [Heartbeat EP](http://thegumshoestrut.bandcamp.com/album/heartbeat-ep) on Saskatoon Folk Rap Records. Check out our pals at the [Beer Boutique](http://www.facebook.com/beerboutiquewpg/)! Join us at the third annual [Manitoba Podcast Festival](http://www.facebook.com/mbpodfest/), which takes place entirely online, Sept. 26-27!
